She told reporters her decision to enter the lion's enclosure is a "spiritual" experience.
"I am now the Lion. Can not you say that? Have you ever heard of reincarnation? Autry is also accused of having entered a giraffe enclosure on the same day she paid her visit to the Li. Autry told reporters last month that she hoped the lions would be well treated by the zoo and that she loved them.
"I love you, Leo, hope they treat you right in the zoo. Realize that Myah loves you. I did not mean to abuse you or anything like that, "said Autry," I've seen you come to me, we're connecting. "
